Abstract

Exercise is now accepted as highleffective in reducing the risk of many chronic diseases by both the scientific and medical communities (Unites States Department of Helath and Human Services, 1996), as well as preventing their progression, relapse and recurrence. It has also long been recognised as an effective treatment for a diverse range of injuries, diseases and conditions. Clinical exercise services have three main outcome goals: to improve function; clinical status; and quality of life, and these are supported by a growing body of evidence demonstrating the efficacy of exercise across a wide array of chronic medical conditions.
